INDUSTRY SOLUTION EXPERIENCES
CONCURRENT EQUIPMENT ENGINEERING
Drive superior performance with true concurrent engineering, and unlock the potential to collaborate to innovate.
Concurrent Equipment Engineering brings the benefits of true concurrent engineering – the ability for all the stakeholders to collaborate and work on the same engineering data without any exchange or conversion. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it links all engineering disciplines together in the same environment (design, engineering, simulation, and manufacturing) with a bi-directional flow of digital information.
Concurrent Equipment Engineering provides the digital continuity needed to manage all engineering, simulation and manufacturing information consistently. It serves to break the information silos between these and other business disciplines, improving collaboration and accelerating the pace of operations.
DIGITAL EQUIPMENT CONTINUITY
One unique solution to engineer, produce and service fast anywhere
One of the advantages big industrial equipment companies have is technology that provides seamless data continuity and productivity across their entire enterprise. New technologies perpetuate incredible new processes and systems to advance how manufacturers make products and deliver services.
But for small to medium companies, adopting new technology can seem overwhelming and cost prohibitive. With Digital Equipment Continuity, small to medium Industrial Equipment companies can level the playing field with a data driven collaboration platform provides digital continuity across the complete value chain. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, this solution allows companies to transform from file based to a data driven product structure, and shift from a standalone product portfolio to service-based offerings that support better customer engagements and additional revenue.
From product engineering to manufacturing to service and maintenance, Digital Equipment Continuity provides the accelerated freedom to collaborate, design and produce at an accelerated rate at any location.
